Financials and valuations
 

Financials and valuations

For the quarter ending Sept 30, 2021, the company reported revenues of Rs 1053.69 crores and a net profit of Rs 136.22 crores. The June quarter was almost the same with revenues of Rs 1030.88 crores and net profits of Rs 140 crores. The EPS for the first half ending Sept 30, 2021 translates to Rs 11.77. If we annualize the same, we arrive at an EPS of Rs 24 or thereabouts. At the current market price of Rs 237, the stock is discounted less than times. The company's dividend yield on the stock works to around 1.48%. The stock looks cheap fundamentally and remains a good pick.

Buy the stock of Oil India

Buy the stock of Oil India

Crude oil prices have surged to almost $90 a barrel and one of the beneficiaries of the same is definitely Oil India. The company is an oil and gas exploration company that is likely to see the next few quarters being robust as geo-political tensions have pushed crude oil prices higher.

We believe that a surge in economic activity and rising tensions on the Russia-Ukraine front would continue to keep crude oil prices elevated. The stock of Oil India is also cheap at a1-year forward price to earnings multiple of less than 8 times and a dividend yield of more than 2%. Buy the stock for its cheap valuations, good dividend yield and better prospects on rising crude prices.

A word on the markets

A word on the markets

We believe that investors should just buy small quantities and not invest lumpsum in the markets. Indian markets are horrible expensive, thanks to relentless buying by mutual funds in the last few years, which have seen solid inflows from investors. We believe with interest rates across the globe rising and also in India, stocks might take a breather and getting stupendous returns like in 2021, would be far-fetched.
